Bill On Secure Gun Storage Passes House

A bill that makes unsafe storage of a firearm a crime is moving forward.  The legislation narrowly passed a vote in the house yesterday.  According to the legislation, it revises the crime of unlawfully permitting a child access to a firearm to place emphasis on firearm safety and proper storage.  Under the bill a gun owner could face a Class B misdemeanor if a minor or unauthorized person gets an unsecured weapon.  If the weapon is used to kill or injure someone, the punishment would be moved up to a Class A misdemeanor.
